Aside from the lack of fire protection, who stands that close to a fire like that. The truck can be replaced, they risked serious injury on top of the vehicle loss.

I was thinking the same thing. Both smoke inhalation, and when that fuel tank blows....

You'd think with all of the edting they did to that video they could have at least edited out the 5 minutes of looking down at the leaves on the ground while he ran around.

Bobeck's old youtube video of the refracted light off of his house almost causing a fire in his yard was more action packed than this!

You know I keep meaning to see if that is still going on. Last year we took the windows out and replaced all the woodwork holding them in. They were re-installed in a slightly different position, so no idea where the reflections are pointing now.

I know fascinating shizz. Try to contain yourselves.

Pedro, post something new please not this 2 year old junk. Seriously man. Come on. You are killing us with this crap.

If I ever hear of a house fire across the street from you, I'm calling the authorities!
